PROSTATE CANCER IS CURABLE

BySANTIAGO VILAS, Ph.D.

A guide for the patient-to-be (all men age 35-40+) as well as for the man already diagnosed...and for his wife or partner. Dr. Vilas identifies symptoms, explains tests and details main treatments available. This book is labeled "unique" because it fills in the gap: how to interact with doctors, how to determine which treatment is best without side effects (mainly incontinence and impotence). The prostate is the center of the man's sense of identity (manhood,masculinity, sexuality) and the risk of inability to perform will impair his emotional being and affect his partner. Special attention is devoted to African American men, whose prostate cancer incidence is 50% higher than Whites and whose mortality is 100% higher than Whites. First book paying a graphic tribute to the eminent specialists who discovered or perfected advances to diagnose and to cure prostate cancer, such as, Drs. Young, Huggins, Whitmore, Walsh, Watanabe, Bagshaw, Gleason, Holm, Chu, Catalona, Partin, Ragde, Blasko, Critz and others.
